Yes, i don't have ipoib and i think that it does not needed, but as i
see nobody use rdma without ipoib. As i see i can operate by node gid
or scan full subnet and iterate on each node, in this case i can write
hostname to node_desc and while scanning subnet - check node_desc with
needed name, if it matches - return gid, lid and other needed params
to establish connection.
ibnetdiscover have this feature , but have many code around, so
extract needed parts not very simple.
